Hi I’m Jordan.
I’m the founder and main writer for newridertips.com. I got into riding roughly 9 years ago, ever since then I’ve been hooked. I can’t get enough.
My love of motorcycles is what led me to create this website. A place to share my experiences and knowledge I have gained from countless hours of riding and practice.
I commute on my motorcycle daily (when the weather allows) and hit the parking lots to practice whenever I have a few extra minutes. Even if it’s only for 15 minutes or so. Yes, I’ve dropped my motorcycle, 3 times to be exact. All three were in my first 2 years of riding, but it didn’t faze me. I learned from my mistake and moved on. None of them were serious, they all happened while I was doing slow maneuvers. So, no biggie.
I started on an old beat up Ninja 650, then worked my way up to larger cruisers, which I rode for a few years until I decided to get something a bit better and easier for city traffic.
While there may be more than one way to boil an egg, the techniques, tricks and tips I share are 100% battle tested by me on the road. They work for me, more importantly they have kept me safe on the road.
That’s not to say the way I do things is the best or only way, or that I’m stuck in my ways. Quite the opposite, I’m constantly looking at how I can do things better and how to improve my riding skills. Whenever I learn something new, i’ll share it with you.
About this site:
The goal of this website is help give new riders the resources and information they need to help them not only improve their skills, but also remain safer on the road.
I have dedicated this website (and soon to be YouTube channel) to sharing the basic rules of riding, as well giving you all the tips, tricks and techniques I have learned over the years. Hopefully this will help you avoid some of the mistakes I have made when I first started riding.
If there is a topic you feel we haven’t covered or maybe one we haven’t gone in enough depth about, drop us a message and we’d love to hear about it. You can also join us on pinterest as well.
Any reviews of gear or equipment you see me talk about on newridertips.com, is a piece of gear I have either owned or borrowed and tested before recommending it, or at the very least it’s gear a friend has owned and I have seen his/her first hand experience with it. So you can be sure these pieces are worth trying.
